University Drive closed for realignment

Daily Staff Report

A portion of University Drive in Winchester from Millwood Avenue to the Lowry Tennis Courts will be closed to through traffic until it is realigned, a process which is expected to take about four months.

According to a release from Shenandoah University, the closure is part of the first phase of the Millwood Avenue Public Improvement Project, which began on Monday and will continue throughout the summer. The first phase is projected to take a total of 150 days.

"Three significant enhancements included in the overall project will improve Millwood Avenue and University Drive areas near Shenandoah University," the release states. "These enhancements include significant stormwater management improvements, the realignment of University Drive and the creation of a free-flowing right turn lane on Jubal Early Drive."

Beginning on Monday, lanes on Jubal Early Drive in front of the university will narrow from 12 feet to 10 feet for the construction of a free-flowing right turn lane.

For the next 30 days, the closure of University Drive will include the portion between the intersection at Lowry Drive and the Lowry Tennis Courts, which will eliminate the Armory building parking lot.

Entrances to the university during the closure will include Lowry Drive through Millwood Avenue and Lowry Drive through Pleasant Valley Road. These entrances can also be used to access Jim Barnett Park, Lowry Tennis Courts and Potts Basketball Courts.

Millwood Avenue will stay open until all of the work is completed, the release states.
